"There is something unique to each individual school and that something is climate" (Kalis, 1980, p.89). In the past decade much descriptive research has focused on effective schooling and has identified school climate as a quality indicator. "School climate may be defined as those qualities of a school that affect the attitudes, behavior and achievement of the people involved in its operation-students, staff, parents and members of the community" (National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP], 1984, p.18). Kelly (1980) defines school climate as feelings of satisfaction, how the needs of the individual are met in the environment, and productivity, the accomplishment of task.
